In Marvel Comics recent big push to add more “Diversity” to the product it puts out,they commissioned a bunch of talented artist to make series of hip-hop themed variant covers of their iconic comic book character. They’re more like “parody” than “variant” covers in my opinion. Some are pretty funny like this “Astonishing ANT MAN: Ready To Shrink” which is a parody of the now classic “The Notorious B.I.G: Ready to Die” album cover nicely done by Mark Brooks. Mark definitely hit the mark with this one, this one made me laugh 4sho. There’s a bunch more variant covers you can check out now and we were gonna post them all in this article but we decided to give each one that’s out now it’s own featured article so stay tuned for more post.
